Wine Tasting: Drink Like a Pilgrim (kind of)

November 15, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


What did the Pilgrim’s drink at the first Thanksgiving? Not wine. But what wine might they have drunk?

That is what we are here to find out.

With cultural influences wrought by the Protestant Reformation, taste-preferences of the Royalists and Roundheads, a stint in Amsterdam, and the world-changing maritime activies of commerce and exploration, what might these organic-farming exiles have drunk? Let’s pretend!

I nominate:

  • Silvio Carta Vernaccia Valle del Tirso, Italy
  • Billsboro Pinot Gris, New York
  • Terre Sparse Rarissima, Italy
  • Ranchelle Millocchio Rosso, Italy
  • Brea Cabernet Sauvignon, California

BONUS: These bottles will be available for sale to-go!

This tasting will be led by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and our Wining Archaeologist. Let her guide you through 5 wines, and the circuitous path of the Pilgrims.

Your $30 ticket entitles you to our 5-wine tasting plus light snacks, as well as 15% off your evening’s bar tab AND special pricing on bottles of the evening’s wines (for to-go sales).

*You must be 21 or over to participate
